On Sunday, December 5th 2010 - in conjunction with the Centennial of Women in Aviation organization, and because of the Fly It Forward campaign started by the amazingly talented Karlene Petitt of the Flight to Success blog, Nate & Zyola were honored to introduce Jackie from KOSI Radio in Denver to General Aviation.
Some links for more information:
Centennial of Women in Aviation - 100 Years of Women Licensed Women Pilots
Karlene's blog, Flight to Success - Karlene put out a challenge and backed it with her own funds for prizes, but more importantly, helped with a HUGE event at her home airport near Seattle, WA.
Jackie's blog at KOSI Radio's Website - "I flew, I FLEW!"
The current tally as of the release of this podcast is 852 introductory flights for girls and women in 11 countries on 4 continents made by volunteer pilots worldwide.
Editor's Note: I *really* wanted to share this audio and this story with you all, and put in some crazy hours getting Episode 26 out of the can and on the site so I could get to this audio. This is by FAR the best thing I've done in Aviation all year, and I want to thank Jackie and her friend for coming out and taking a flight in good old N1279M, and Zyola, Karlene and all the volunteers at Centennial of Women in Aviation for their efforts to get the word out and organize events. Take a girl or woman up flying, and show them the love and passion we all have for Aviation today. Don't wait! -Nate
